Dead laptop Answered
My acer aspire 6920 laptop doesn't boot. I have tried the POWER RESET (as an option specified on the acer website), by removing the battery, unplugging, and holding the power button for 20-30 seconds. This had no effect.
How it happened:
I was playing a game called Warzone2100 on Ubuntu, and it FROZE, so i did a hard shutdown and then.....
When I press the power button the following happens:
>The Cinedash, and power button light come on . The Hard drive and Cd-rom, fan, and HDD start-up as well.
>The hard drive light above the caps lock and num lock indicators flashes seven times consistently, with about a 3/4 of a second between each flash.
>The system shuts off completely
>(without anyone pressing the power button)The system turns back on and nothing happened.
>The system requires a hard shut down.
During this entire period NOTHING shows up on the screen, and the back light stays off.
I think my BIOS is a PHOENIX and according to some research 7 BIOS beeps means its a bad processor. So I think my flashing light could be a Bios indicator.
If my conclusion is true, do laptop processors cost ? and where would I be able to get one ?
Are they easy to install ? are they interchangeable with desktop processors ?
BTW My processor is an Intel Centrino T5750 Dual Core 2.0ghz.
Thanks to anyone who helps me out !
